CHICAGO, Nov. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — UBM Studios’ Milicruit, the recognized leader in digital recruitment environments for military veterans, announces that there will be more than 21,000 jobs available from employers exhibiting in the Milicruit national career fair on November 10th.

The Milicruit event will feature some of the best military-friendly employers from industries ranging from healthcare to manufacturing, and with over 31,000 service members, veterans, and military spouses already registered to participate, it is sure to be the best military recruiting event of the year.

“We started Milicruit last year believing that we could very quickly help to bring thousands of veterans together with industry-leading employers through our virtual recruitment center, but we honestly did not expect it to be this big this fast. Prior to the event we will host on November 10th, we have connected over 72,000 veterans and more than 240 Fortune 1,000 employers and government agencies through the Milicruit service, and we will continue to build on that until we reduce the unemployment rate many of our veterans and military spouses are currently faced with,” says Kevin O’Brien, VP Business Development, UBM Studios-Milicruit.

The majority of the employers who rely on Milicruit to source military talent have made the decision to keep their booth open throughout the year which allows them to attract talent nationwide everyday even if a career fair is not happening. “We appreciate and value what veterans and spouses bring to Progressive. Milicruit has offered us a great platform for building our brand and sharing job openings countrywide,” says Gina Simonivich, Talent Advisor, Progressive Insurance.

The national career fair will run from 11-4PM EST on November 10th and recruiters from all participating employers will be online and staffing their virtual booths. Service members, veterans and military spouses interested in participating should register today at www.veteranscareerfair.com

“We believe the men and women who have served the country have fought long and hard enough, and we are honored to help them with their employment search in any way we can. It is great to see such prominent American companies stepping up and hiring veterans and military spouses not because of a moral obligation but because it simply makes good business sense,” says O’Brien.
